In today’s digital era, we could be married by Facebook status but not actually in real life. We could be in love, but never actually say ‘I love you’ in person. Falling in love is easy but staying in love requires a lot of work. After years of living under the same roof, we often forget to show love because other things took over –work, kids.
Here are five simple ways to keep your marriage warm and alive.
Daily doses of hugs and kisses
Make it a habit of hugging or kissing your spouse early in the morning before leaving for work. This may look trivial but it will become a second nature once you do it every day. This act of love, albeit simple, is very powerful indeed. It helps to break down barriers easily should you faced with future conflicts.
We often forget that before we are husband and wife, we are men and women. As time passed by, you forget how gorgeous she looks in that red dress or how good he smells in the aftershave. Put an effort to compliment each other even if it’s out of your way to do so. If you forget, just text him or her!
After having kids, spending time together is proven to be so much harder. However, a loving relationship between husband and wife is the essence of a happy family. Invest in hiring a babysitter at least once or twice a week so that you could spend valuable time with each other. This way, both of you could catch up, wind down and relax.
Although this may sound a lot of work, you could actually simplify it according to your schedule. Rotate in surprising each other every other week and this does not mean it has to be going out or spending money. For example, you could cook for her a special meal or bring him out to see exhibits in the art gallery that is completely free. Small surprises like these will make you appreciate each other’s company.
10 minutes conversation every day
Although we talk to each other every day but we don’t necessarily engage in a conversation. It is important to actually sit down and have an adult conversation every day. You could talk about anything but it is good if you could express your dreams and gratitude for each other. It doesn’t have to take long but be sure to do it every day and see for yourself how it will change your life!
